Default Can Inmates Choose Which Jail to go to?

This guy I know told me he's moving back to California where he used to stay before he was moved to another state due to over crowd. He used to stay at a county jail out here in Cali. Anyone know if he would go to county jail the exact place he used to stay at or state prison? I'm confused

Impossible to say until he gets to where he's going. You can't choose your jail location.

Generally speaking, no. They can put in requests within the state prison system for various reasons (for example if they have an elderly or terminally ill relative they might be able to get a transfer to a closer prison by request,) but the final say is up to the prison. Some inmates won't get that sort of thing granted (think SHU inmates at Pelican Bay.). Others may have an easy time of it (minimum or well-behaved medium security inmates.)

Also if he has already been sentenced to a state prison then he would stay in the state prison system UNLESS the reason he is being brought back to California is due to a new charge in California.
